Twins Ryan and Jane return to the remote Colorado cabin of their youth... and are stranded by a blizzard and by a horrifying creature outside.

The Shuddering, by Ania Ahlborn

"I was totally drawn into this story from the beginning. I wanted to read slowly so I could enjoy the book longer, Ahlborn's writing is well done. The characters are likeable and interesting. I think that Ahlborn is best at describing the setting of her character's surroundings. In this case it was very cold, snowy and isolated. I have also read The Neighbors by Ahlborn which I also liked a lot. I have to say I am moving this author to my run out and buy list. I can't wait to read Seed while I wait for a new book." -- Amazon reviewer
Ryan Adler and his twin sister, Jane, spent their happiest childhood days at their parents' mountain Colorado cabin-until divorce tore their family apart. Now, with the house about to be sold, the Adler twins gather with their closest friends for one last snowboarding-filled holiday. While commitment-phobic Ryan gazes longingly at Lauren, wondering if his playboy days are over, Jane's hopes of reconciling with her old boyfriend evaporate when he brings along his new fiancée. As drama builds among the friends, something lurks in the forest, watching the cabin, growing ever bolder as the snow falls…and hunger rises.

After a blizzard leaves the group stranded, the true test of their love and loyalty begins as the hideous creatures outside close in, one bloody attack at a time. Now Ryan, Jane, and their friends must fight-tooth and nail, bullet and blade-for their lives. Or else surrender to unspeakable deaths in the darkened woods.
